Critical legal theories

Chapter


Abstract


  • You might remember the story of the protestors who took action against

    the NSW government, because of the government's attempt to limit their ability

    to protest during Catholic World Youth Day in 2008. 1 The Federal Court clearly

    stated that the law contained within it certain rights and freedoms assumed to be

    available to everyone - including the right of free expression. Being allowed to

    demonstrate- in this case to 'annoy' those against whom you were demonstrating

    - was taken as a given by the court. 2 On the other hand, demonstrating and

    violence or causing harm to others was not acceptable.
